International 1:1 Computing Conference
Bring your Team for two wonderful days of
sharing, learning and transforming!
Program Sessions (click here for description)
The movement toward 1:1 computing in education has steadily grown over the last several years, and interest continues to grow. Several regional conferences have been created to help serve this interest. Three such conferences are the Lausanne Laptop Institute, the Iowa 1:1 Conference, and the Great Lakes 1:1 Computing Conference. These three organizations, along with the Canadian Education Association have identified the need for more comprehensive support of 1:1 implementation efforts, as well as the need to unify the 1:1 community.
The centerpiece of our unifying effort is the creation of the International 1:1 Computing Conference. The conference will act as a nexus where education leaders can share challenges and successes, learn from colleagues, make meaningful long-term connections, and set a path to transform their practice.
Why the International 1:1 Computing Conference is Unique
The goal of the 2013 International 1:1 Computing Conference is to provide participants with new knowledge, practical strategies and the opportunity to build a community of practice around using technology to transform classroom instruction and to deeply engage students through communication, collaboration, creation, and personalized learning. Participants will collect best practices that can be applied ‘just in time’ upon returning to their school districts.
